UK: Wooden Doors: Wooden Door Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT WOODEN DOORS
There are three main types of wooden doors: Panel Wooden Doors, Ledged Wooden Doors, and Engineered Wood Doors. Panel Wooden Doors have a frame of vertical members (stiles) and horizontal members (rails). These typically create four or six openings, into which solid wooden panels are slotted. Alternatively the openings may be glazed. Ledged Wooden Doors are of traditional rustic construction; vertical planks are held together with horizontal rails to which diagonal braces may be added. Engineered wood doors have a core of laminated timber, with hardwood veneer applied. Leading UK suppliers of wooden doors are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.
